The hotel switched off their lights in back-of-the-house areas and dimmed the lights in public areas, restaurants and hotel exteriors, joining the global climate awareness campaign organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). It first started in Sydney, Australia in 2007, making this year the 9th anniversary.
